Your EO Cheat Sheet: Where to Apply Roll-Ons

You come home from a long day of work to find a package waiting for you at your door. And not just any package — an Edens Garden package. Huzzah! Your new roll-ons have arrived, so you rip through the packaging in record time and uncover the gems within. At last, you hold the roll-ons in your hand and uncap them. But wait? Where should you apply them?

If you can relate, then look no further. We’ve broken down where to apply your roll-ons based on their uses, so you can rest assured you’re receiving maximum benefits.

Perfume: If you’re applying a roll-on simply because you love it and want to be surrounded by your favorite aromas, then apply it to your pulse points. The pulse points are warmer areas on your body. When oils are applied to pulse points, they are gently warmed, amplifying aromas, allowing you to enjoy your roll-ons to the fullest.

Physical ailments: When it comes to pain, inflammation and skin issues, roll-ons can be applied directly to the area of concern. For headaches, roll-ons are best applied to the temples and head; for digestion, apply to the stomach. Keep in mind that a little goes a long way, as roll-ons are typically diluted higher for spot treatment. So no need douse the area of concern.

Repellent: Keep bugs at bay by applying your roll-on to pulse points and exposed areas. For example, if your limbs are exposed, apply the roll-on in a short line down your forearms and biceps as well as your shins and outer thighs. You will want to apply a moderate amount of oil.

Respiratory: For respiratory related ailments, it is best to inhale the oil directly. The best way to inhale oils directly is to apply the roll-on underneath your nose or to pulse points on or near the face (such as the neck and temples). You can also apply to the chest for coughs and infections.

Mental concerns: Emotional and sleep-related issues are often best complemented by essential oils when inhaled. As such, apply your roll-on to pulse points near or around your face.

Sickness and immunity: When it comes to sickness and immunity, you will want to absorb the oils as best you can. The skin is generally thinner around the pulse points, which allows for easier absorption. Again, this makes it the ideal area for application. This also means that the bottoms of your feet and palms would not be an ideal application area, as skin is thickest there.

Hi Sydney, our roll-ons have different dilution rates which you can find on their product pages in the description.

My dad gets every virus that comes through. Would the Fighting Five roll on be a good choice for him?

Kathy, you can apply Head Ease as needed. Note, exceeding 7-10 times is generally unnecessary. You may also want to switch between blends every few months to prevent habituation.

Willa, Fighting Five may be too intense for young children. With that said, you may want to try our immune-boosting Healthy Hero blend, made specifically with children’s safety in mind.

Can you use fighting five on 2 year old and 4 year old children or should you use roll on or diffuse

This was so helpful, thank you for the great information. I’ve always wanted the kids to try the roll ons since they are allowing them to be used at school, but was actually not sure where & how to tell them to use them. I let my 10 year old read this, & he is now excited to get his roll ons. He will be 11 in a couple of months, and asked for the full set for his bay, lol! Yes… I’ve gotten him hooked on EO’s & his diffuser is the first thing he starts up in the mornings & when he gets home from school, & at night! I love that he has found natural ways to cope with all craziness since March & he’s been missing it while at school, now that they actually get to back to school. So thanks again for such an easy to follow guide for roll ons that even my 5th grader now feels confident that he can use on his own at school!
